Legio 40k Tourney - The inquisition Wars
Wow!! That was a great event by Legio. Cool t-shirts, complimentary super cool measuring device and great looking crowds and also armies. That is what Legio tourney is all about, the best there is! Congrats to all the winners and participants for making this tourney an eventful one.
How did I do in the tourney? Well, I won 2 and lost 1 and scored above average for both appearance and sportsmanship, ended up at 9th placing. I'm really happy with the appearance scores (thanks judges..lol) and this really a motivation to take my paintings to a higher plane.
My Cadian 7th performed well in the tourney but my Manticore was a let down. Maybe I've not mustered the tactics to utilise it, but the rest of the Cadians performed well nonetheless. First round was against Xian's gun line Imperial Guard which I won, LUCKILY, for the battle ended at turn 5 with a Vet squad with 5 men left holding the objective at the center table. What was left, a damaged Executioner and a Battle Canonless Leman Russ.
Second round, against Spore Con 2009 Overall Champion, Tsui with his beautiful and deadly Space Wolves army. I lost badly this round but it was a fun game nonetheless. My dice rolls were abysmal with bad pen rolls and leadership tests. But the highlight of the game when a single meltagun shot from my Stormtroopers managed to explode a Land Raider Redeemer. Living Lightning was nightmare, most of my Chimeras got wrecked due to that wretched psychic power. The Manticore however, survived till the end with not a single damage done on the Space Wolves, how pathetic! It was a near total annihilation on the Cadians.
Third round, the Cadian 7th returned with a superb win after that woeful encounter with the Space Wolves. This round was against Nik Kamal's Eldar. A Kill Point game, my Executioner performed well this round, killing most of his ground troops including Prince Yriel. Veterans picked off Wave serpents and Falcons with precised Meltagun shots. The battle ends at turn 6 with 8 to 5 kill points favoring the Cadians.
I was exhausted after the 3rd round. We proceeded to the prize ceremony (go to Legio's Website for the list of winners and rankings) and then headed to nearby mamak near Oldtown for gossiping session, hehe..which then I realised I've missed Asar prayer..hmmm. But it was a great event indeed and can't wait for the next Legio tourney. AVE LEGIO!!
Season 3 League and moving forward
I've ended up 3rd place for Season 3 league and automatically qualified for the finals on December 5th. I thought Jo going to dethroned me last Friday, eventhough he managed to win a game but not enough points for 3rd placing. Anyhow, the 4th player will be the determined after the Marksman tournament which is on November 28th. I wonder who'll make it thru this time? Whatever it is, the Cadian 7th fears no one (well maybe the Orks, lol..) and ready for battle. For the Emperor!!
Moving forward, after the League finals, my Cadians will get a deserved long break and I'm reactivating my long stalled Black Legion project. I've finished painting 3 BL Terminators so far (see below) and will proceed to finish 10 BL Berzerkers by next week. Maybe after that, I'll start work on Abadon, and yes he will lead my Black Legion. For my Slaanesh, I need to finish up on the cardboard Land Raider with chaos ornaments and other decoratives. Chaos can't be denied! Death to the False Emperor!!
